Anyone familiar with Milazzo, Sicily?

Just wondering if anyone has been to Milazzo, on the north east coast of Sicily and, if so, what they thought of it.

Re: Anyone familiar with Milazzo, Sicily?

he he! No (I wish ...) - just thinking about visiting as I have heard that it is lovely, as are the nearby volanic islands. And it is, of course, very handy for me at the moment.

I am in Sicily right now (Favignana), lovely place and lovely food.
There are people flying to the other side of the world to swim in clear waters when there are even better just 2 hours away

Not two hours from Milazzo ... or the mainland, I would think.

Re: Anyone familiar with Milazzo, Sicily?

I took it to mean: nice clear water swimming 2hrs. away from Favignana ---- which is a small island off the west coast of Sicily; and as Milazzo is NE coast, it could be in between.
